romney became the fifth of the last six republican presidential nominees to fail to win the popular vote. last week he told a meeting of party conservatives that he fell short. >> as someone who just lost the last election i'm probably not in the best position to chart the course for the next one. >> ifill: romney's defeat has inspired much republican soul searching. today party chairman reince priebus unveiled his solution. >> we want to build our party. we want to do it with bold strokes to show we're up to the challenge and we're done with business as usual. >> ifill: the 98-page report detailed the party's failures in 2012. >> as it makes clear, there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. so there's no one solution. there's a long list of them. >> ifill: called the growth and opportunity project or g.o.p., the report is unsparingly self-critical, conceding among other things that the party is increasingly seen as the province
of the three million white guys that didn't vote for romney. i'm one of the people that are being driven away. first of all, i just think it's interesting, talking about the challenges of asians and hispanic communities, well, how come we don't talk about the challenges that germans face or italians or polish? because those groups assimilated. i don't know how many times i have to keep saying this, it just goes in one ear and out the other -- host: you think republicans are having trouble reaching out to those groups as well? >> caller: no, i used to believe in assimilation. we used to believe in moratoriums on migration, which was best for the whole country is unity. it's not diversity. it's encouraging groups to reject the idea of ethnic voting blocs and ethnic grievance. we don't believe in that. now, the republicans, country club republicans leadership wants to become democrats. they want to bow to the concept of the permanent ascendancy of multilingualism, the permanent ascendancy of group identity, and it's not going to work. and for every person they might reach out to, if they want to
worked for several republican governors including mitt romney when he was governor of massachusetts. >> reporter: a date for her confirmation hearing has yet to be set but probably, bill, in the next few weeks. bill: thank you, doug mckelway, more on those e-mails. >> well the family of a jailed american pastor in iran is now demanding that the obama administration issue a statement calling for the release of saeed abedini. attorneys for the abedinies at at hearing on friday accuse the u.s. state department being quote, awol on this subject for the last few months. listen to some of this. >> i think the state department's refusal to appear before this committee today is extremely troubling and frankly offensive. the failure to appear today to testify frankly is inexcusable. we've had some dialogue with the state department over the last several months. i will be honest, mr. chairman it has not been pleasant. the lack of concern, the lack of engagement has been problematic in our work to free pastor saeed abedini. saeed abedini is a united states citizen. he is us and our government
which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic setting. >> people for symbolic purposes. >> joe doesn't like paper money either. he wants to get rid of the dollar bill. >> we are into a bartering system at the scarborough house. >> you got a problem say
barack obama was the pro-growth optimist and that mitt romney was the pessimist and kemp always wand that high ground which reagan always had. the point i want to underscore that you just said and then i'll bring the others in, i knew jack, jack was such a dear friend. jack talked constantly about reaching out to minorities, empowerment zones, school choice for example, home ownership. it was jack kemp who worked with charlie rangel to create empowerment zones here in new york and elsewhere and to cut or abolish the capital gains tax to entrepreneurs. it's one of the days to this day i'm still charles errol rangel. the republican party has to get that for blacks, for minorities, for asians, prosperity for everybody of. >> instead of defending multi-millionaires, he went out to those who were poor, minorities and said i want you to be millionaires. >> it wasn't just his energy, it wasn't just his entrepreneurship, it was his message. can you almost say that message of capitalism and prosperity for everybody but especially for those that have not, jimmy. jack kemp spoke to those who ha
in 2012, governor romney, gop nominee, he couldn't use obamacare as issue. as people find out more and more, look what is happening to the tax on medical devices. senate overwhelmingly to repeal it, including 33 democrat senators voted for it. as popular opinion starts to weigh in you will see uprising. administration will be very tempted to use european solutions. think that will set them up for real smackdown in 2014. david: steve forbes portfolio, are you 100% stocks now. >> retirement fund, always invested. ride the storm. if you ride the market you will get whipsawed. i ride the wave. david: good advice. steve, see you tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. on fox news channel. >> terrific. david: shibani. shibani: prices for u.s. farmland have been paradise not only for farmers but investors with prices doubling since 2009. the rapid rise has some wondering if the next bubble to burst isn't on wall street but in fact in the heartland of america? jeff flock will join to us have that story. david: also it is he portfolio indicator. a top strategy tells us why ditching the east and heading sou
. that this is not going to be something we sideline or in the words of mitt romney kicked down the road. >> yeah, that was epic huh? >> hal: holy -- if you want -- let's talk about for a second the perception of the republican party's relationship with israel, and the reality of the democrat's position in their relationship with israel. because republicans ran a guy who did two amazing things during the last campaign. he said openly that's something where you really -- it's never going to be solved and you basically just kick the can down the road and make it the next guy's problem. >> which is an unbelievable thing for a presidential candidate to say about an issue that large. >> hal: especially when you leave a few weeks later to go there to campaign for money. >> and bring donors with you. >> hal: right. and in your sensitivity have your fund raiser on a holiday. remember that? >> yeah. >> hal: they scheduled it on a holiday -- and they were like well -- we'll do it quietly, like we won't serve wine or something. and it's like dude that's not the point! >> no. >> hal: so
, push the party message and earn votes with ticket-topper mitt romney. then came last november. remys did hold on to the u.s. house of representatives and majority of gubernatorial seats among other win, yet given the fiery and sometimes ugly blame game, mr. priebus might have been wished for the days he was recognized as a rising star all while taking the republican party by storm. he's been working on campaigns since he was 16 and wound through the wisconsin republican party ranks and up to the rnc. he is proud to be a lifelong green pay packers fan. -- green bay packers fan. we're told he played a mean game of softball during his time working on his law degree at the university of miami. a time to reflect and look forward happens in any party that loses, but it doesn't lessen the sting when you're the recipient. mr. priebus has been working on a way to rally the faithful and plot a new strategy for the midterm election in 2014 and presidential contest in 2016. one of the silver linings which happened along the way is getting reelected as party chairman. to create a playbook for his
challenges with respect to the economy and the budget. governor romney did the same thing. and both of them said the american people faced a very important and fundamental choice. and the american people chose. they chose to support president obama's vision of accelerating economic growth, putting more people back to work, taking a shared responsibility approach to our long-term deficits so we bring them down in a balanced smart way and they rejected the idea that we're going to move the economy forward by giving windfall tax cuts to the very wealthiest in the country and the benefits of that would trickle down and lift everybody up. they rejected that lopsided approach that balance the budgets on the backs of everybody but the folks at the very top. balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education by slashing important investments. in that category of spending we make these important investments for our country and our future, they double the cut from the sequester. so those are our investments in our kids' education. those are our investments in science and research to help power ou
of things. three people are starting it. first of all, mitt romney's former campaign manager, matt rhodes. he stays out of the lime light most often but he's going to run this and he's the first ever campaign manager for a national presidential candidate who was, in fact, the head of r.n.c. opposition research. he made a living looking into the opposition's records. he's joined us with joe pounder, another whiz with both the opposition research and rapid response end of all of this and he, too, was involved in that at the r.n.c. and tim miller who si a spokesman at the r.n.c. and worked for the john huntsman campaign in 2012. acquitted himself as a clear communicator with the new technology. listen to their goal z. we're going to have dedicated trackers to all the democratic candidates up in big races in 2014 and all of the potential democrat rising stars down the line for 2016 races or the future and so we did not have last cycle was one organization that sole purpose was to take that video, to monitor the interviews they're doing and making sure what they're saying back home isn't diffe
-cylinder, gasoline engine will always do better. >> did mitt romney write that? tracy: all right then. make some real money. let's go down to the floor of the new york stock exchange. sandra smith is there. what's going on, sandra? >> hey, tracy. we're watching shares of blackberry, the much buzzed about new blackberry hits stores today. of course this is after a two-month delay. very much anticipated. this is the new d-10. shares are down today. remember the stock has enjoyed very nice gains leading up to this. it is up 8% for the week. up 21% for the month. remember by the way it is entering a very, very competitive marketplace. so the still a lot of work to do. back to you. tracy: sure is. sandra, she you in 15 minutes. still in my old school curve right here. not going anywhere. >>> coming up banks paying millions of dollars in settlements sometimes without admitting anything wrong. hey, why not? they're getting off too easy. former senator ted kaufman will weigh in next. adam: plus a special day for the best-selling musical act of all time. the beatles. we'll tell you why. here is how the dollar
in the span of eight years from 44%, that's what george bush received, to just 27% for mitt romney. alex, why do you think that's happened, can the party reverse it? >> i think we lost our way. we for got i think that this country at some point everybody goes back and their family came here from somewhere. most americans. and we forgot that the new blood re-energizes this country. and i think part of that was the contribution that, well, we didn't have secure borders and at a time when the economy is cratering, all of a sudden it became a very dark process, we're eating our own tail. more jobs for immigrants may have meant less jobs for someone else. and the way you lead yourself out of that is, no, no, everyone has something to con tribute. let's get an immigration process that brings people who want to come here, who want to become americans, who want to contribute to this country not take from this country. and that's always been the republican message. fortunately, they allowed a few republican media consultants to stay. i'm happy about that. but our problems are bigger than just hispanic
will just say politically i thought that was the greatest offer that governor romney had. he was a very good manager. in my opinion, we have had enough speech makers, we have enough war presidents, we have had enough grand and glorious stuff, we need somebody to run this government. like the presiding officer ran the state of virginia. and it takes hard work and you have to stay on top of it, and it would have been great for us to have had real top management so that every cabinet person when they are hired is -- understands they have a duty to produce more for less for the american people. and every sub cabinet and sub cabinet and sub cabinet person and every department head gets the message from top leadership on down, you're expected, like larry thompson and i did, to share a hotel room, if need be, to save your -- to save your debt, save the -- running up debt in the united states government. and this budget doesn't do it. i think we quoted earlier what "the washington post" said, march 15. in short, this budget document gives voters no reason to believe that democrats have a viable plan
. they pulled it back. he filed. they pulled it back. a very temp pestuous relationship. >> he was romney's guy. >> yeah. we didn't know anything during the campaign. it comes out now. >> that's a good theory. yeah. >> well, i'm just saying. >> all right. >> just saying. >> thank you. will you find out some other stuff. >> i will. >> i'm going with half minus seven. >> coming up, a lot of housing data next week. what to expect and what could derail the housing recovery. with fidelity's new options platform, we've completely integrated every step of the process, making it easier to try filters and strategies... to get a list of equity options... evaluate them with our p&l calculator... and execute faster with our more intuitive trade ticket. i'm greg stevens and i helped create fidelity's options platform. it's one more innovative reason serious investors are choosing fidelity. now get 200 free trades when you open an account. ♪ [ male announcer ] from the way the bristles move to the way they clean, once you try an oral-b deep sweep power brush, you'll never go back to a regular manual brush.
on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget.
to revenue. again, we heard from governor romney and others last year that there are about $4 trillion in these disers to -- distortions and preferences in the tax code that help very wealthy people. and what we say is we should get out some of that clutter, some of those preferences and use some of that to help reduce the deficit. and we say at the same time when u do tax reform, don't touch middle-income taxpayers and when we asked our republican colleagues to give us that assurance in the form of an amendment in the budget committee, they all voted no. so, yes, we think that you can eliminate some of the tax breaks and preferences that mr. mcclintock just talked about, but you can use some of them to reduce the deficit. but the republican budget won't use one dime of those to help reduce the deficit. i now yield two minutes to the gentleman from washington state who is both on the budget committee and on the ways and means committee, mr. mcdermott. the chair: the gentleman from washington is recognized for two minutes. without objection, so ordered. mr. mcdermott: mr. chairman, i as
